Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book follows on from Ultimatum where a large part of the Marvel Ultimate universe was devastated by Magneto's wish to wipe out humanity. It begins with Tony Stark (in Iron Man mode) arriving in the post-tidal wave devastation of New York to check out the Stark Manhattan Office where he discovers a strange silver-suited figure stealing something buried in a deep vault. From then on it's a swift but highly adventurous race for Tony to get back all the Iron Man tech that has been stolen from him.

This is Warren Ellis's third foray into the world of Iron Man. His first, Extremis, was set in the usual Marvel Universe (616). The second, Ultimate Hulk Vs Iron Man: Ultimate Human is set in the Ultimate universe and both are excellent and highly recommended reads.

This one also delivers some trademark Ellis brilliantisms (excuse me there for the made up word). My biggest problem with it is that it is only 112 pages long - being made up of four original issues - which is a real shame as it's a great read and, when I got to the end I was thinking 'More please!'

Mr Ellis is a fan of tech and he describes the elements of the Iron Man suit and uses it to such great effect that he makes it feel grounded in reality (imagine Steve Jobs designing flying battle suits rather than Apple products).

Format: Hardcover
The world has been devastated by war and economic collapse and poor Tony Stark is down to his last $100 million! Going back to his ruined New York offices, he sees a thief wearing part of an Iron Man armor break into his offices and disappear! Then a mysterious girl also wearing Iron Man armor shows up to help catch the thief. Suddenly the race is on for Stark to stop his armor from falling into the wrong hands!

As you might tell from the title, Armor Wars has a lotta guys wearing Iron Man suits, all in different colours and slightly modified in design. They all look really cool though with so many robot-like characters flying around blasting one another, the comic looks a lot more manga than Marvel. I really loved the art though, so full credit to artist Steve Kurth for doing a fantastic job.

Warren Ellis writes the best Tony Stark ever. If you're as big a fan of Ellis as I am you'll notice that Stark speaks like a few of Ellis' characters like Spider Jerusalem or Midnighter - that is to say filthy, drunken and articulate - and I love that. It's the only way to write Tony Stark.

Ultimate Armor Wars has a great script, even better artwork, and lotsa Iron Man action - it's a great Iron Man comic, and those are few and far between! Though it's disappointing that it's only four issues long as it's over a bit too soon for my liking. Along with this and Iron Man: Extremis, it seems that if you want the best Iron Man books, look for the ones with Warren Ellis' name on the cover!

Format: Hardcover
I for one have only just begun to indulge Marvel's ultimate universe, as the mainstream continuity is complex enough I usually shy away from multi-versal titles to avoid confusion. Unless of course they stand alone and are enjoyable in themselves, which Ultimate Iron Man: Armor Wars does wonderfully. For those familiar with Tony Stark's character then this incarnation of the man sees him at his best: tenacious, brilliant and unyeilding. And an alcoholic. The UU Iron Man is essentially one big "What if Tony never kicked the habit?". But don't let that disuade you, the man still gets his job done with his usual arrogant but typically amusing resolve. Kudos to the as-always talented Warren Ellis for making a believably flawed main character.
Artistically this was also a delicious read, Steve Kurth's style is best described as slick - flawlessly polished and modern from the opulent decor of Tony's laboratories to the curves of Justine Hammer's bodysuit and all in a way that best suits Iron Man in particular. Also, as a UK citizen, I have to say he makes London look beautiful (so much more than it actually is, even with the exploding tech-suits).
Overall, its swanky comics like this that make the UU worth looking into. I recommend to all Iron man enthusiasts.
